codes. if it's not conforming it would have to be renewed. a mere change in copy would no longer be considered a new sign, however change in new copy will still require a permit. stuff is recommending approval with modifications to the proposed ordinance. while the department does realize how we comply, we also believe it could be interpreted too broadly. that it be changed or would require new change. also add in the exception for a change of copy from one sign type to another for example change an identifying sign to a business sign. these i forwarded to you last week. the department has received comments. the department is seeking approval with modifications with how we treat non-compliant signs and helps preserve the in nature of the character and integrity of buildings and would remove unnecessary burdens on business owners and accommodate new tenants. that concludes my presentation. thank you. >> okay. opening it for public comment. former commissioner rob miguel. trisha, alex walker. >> commissioners, ron miguel, first i would like to welcome to the grandparents club. you

of the neighborhood or the changes in the better street plans that are contemplated for those better neighborhoods. this sign, i don't know why we need to create a blanket permission on the planning department and planning commission would advocate that ability to scrutinize each of these signs. downtown san francisco, city bank has been there for a long time. this sign is very different and very loud from the feeling you have along california street and the financial district. why would we want to give up the ability to scrutinize that in a permitting process. here is another example. what used to be holiday in in chinatown, i took a picture of it at night. it's a beautiful pedestrian bridge. it has a lot of detail on it. it's been botched by that hilton sign. again, as the rules are now contemplated would grandfather that sign. in other words we need to opportunity to reel in branding that is at odds with the character of our neighborhoods. i would like to also point out that san francisco beautiful helped pass prop g. we had voter approval but no enforcement on it until we came here and pounded

practically change the design. sometimes there are differences in code that really make that change and it might be to the detriment of how we might see the design. i think it would be useful in your analysis to look at some of those projects and where the code has changed and how that can be impacted in the over all project design. i'm all fore this kind of 60 day window process because i don't particularly find our discussion as particularly robust until they come back for extension but it's worth having a hearing if we choose those projects to review drawings. i recognize the challenges that what they may not -- people might opt in the process without actually being quite building permit ready. that's the challenge we have when people come for a 3 year entitlement. what they may come for a 3 year extension may not manifest when they do build. that's something we should have a whole separate discussion if the issue of design and outcome is changed. it's truly the change when we have extending. >> first i would like to thank staff the changes to the proposal are great. i think it's

copy change. we are hesitant to create more work for the commission as well. it is an interesting idea to make it an exception and that's something we are open to and open to recommendation from the commission to be able to work on that. >> i think i would be in support of that. and not going through the cost of replacing that there is a cost of going through the c u too. that one size fits all may not work. having the zone or commissioner is one way to go. >> the distinctions the city is able to make for people who want signs, these are not general advertising signs. i think that was obviously very important as well. that's something we can continue to work on but my understanding is that is a bit of a challenge. >> the historic issue, with mr. vettel's where that name has been changed over the years and the copy isn't significant anymore but the architectural element, that's one case, but the copy is significant even though they are not the tenant anymore. we wouldn't want someone to come in and change the copy. the historic aspect needs to be looked at where the copies in histo

>> it sounds like a great locally owned restaurants i've heard about the eaterer when the change over happened and there's great things about the good food. the concerns that the gentleman raised about the disability lawsuits and the office of small businesses but those are federal laws not city laws so they don't impact how people bays bases them but they have been trying to advise small businesses around those issues. and the other issue i'm not familiar with what you're discussing but they are a locally owned company as well. and if it were formula retailer it would open as a regular cafe would but that has no bearing on in this case. what we know about the restaurants it's going to close at 10 o'clock it doesn't sound like a routy place so with that i'd move to approve it's conditions >> i totally agree i mean 8 o'clock closings is not relevant. >> if you've been working actually 5 or 6 o'clock and you've quota to get to your place of work you feel bad coming in at the 745 because you know they're going do close and a lot of restaurants are not serving dinner. you've got to have beer and

that is in question and the changing of the use to vocal point. and while it seems that most of the attention to this property came about because of the conditional use application that they have on file for a wireless facility, what is going on here and the activity is not related to the wireless facility that they have an application in for but in relation for the change of use for this business and professional service use. the definition, well back up a little bit. so the terevel cd which was created last year does tend to add a little bit of confusion. the business and professional businesses listed adds the principally permitted use. however when you look at the street frontage controls it cross-references section 145.4 which is 145.4 c, which lists the active commercial uses and it says that if it is not on that list, then it needs a conditional use authorization and then the planning commission heard this legislation in june of last year and it was very clear to them what the supervisor's intent was on this legislation and so i have highlighted on the overhead is a passage that all of

there is a change of use from a personal service use which would have been the last use the educational use, and the educational after school use excel to the proposed use of vocal point and in reviewing the matter, we did find that the proposed use of vocal point does not comply with the definition of financial service in the planning code. it is i believe a business or professional service use. which is not listed among the uses that is considered to be an act of commercial use. and let me back up. , the property, 2395-26th avenue is located at the end of 26th avenue and the unit is 1600, and there are a couple of storefronts and it is just one of the storefronts that is in question and the changing of the use to vocal point. and while it seems that most of the attention to this property came about because of the conditional use application that they have on file for a wireless facility, what is going on here and the activity is not related to the wireless facility that they have an application in for but in relation for the change of use for this business and professional service use. th

a draft policy you can change that. >> i have a couple comments. there is a process that exist today and it works. so regardless of whether or not we adopt this process, project sponsors can always come back and ask for extension. so even if we adopted this and a project didn't opt in they could still come back and ask for an extension with a hearing, correct? then there is a separate conversation about whether or not 3 years is the correct number of years, we are not talking about that today. in january there is a proposal for extension for 6 years. if that is a conversation to have in the future, i would like to see really robust research in terms of data and the process of how the years were determined. so i think we are not quite ready for that conversation yet. i want to reiterate that. so as far as the the tightening of the language it mirrors what they are already doing, it just makes it a little bit more clear that project sponsors don't have an entitlement after 3 years. as for the program i am open to the idea of some sort of stimulus program that present offered by

essence of a particular sound and the way that it can be developed or changed in its smallest part so that it becomes something else. it can be a very pure sound like for instance, ♪ ohhhhhhh, which is, in a timbre, is very pure, and if we start applying different things to it, for instance, we can change the timbre of the sound by just changing the way that we create the sound. ♪ ohhhhaaaahh. and in fact, what i was doing was actually just opening up the vowel sound to explore the harmonic make-up of that sound. [light, airy tune] we take instruments to be things that produce tones, but each one of those tones in an instrument is actually a huge complex of smaller tones which we usually do not hear. and many musical instruments take advantage of the overtone series in order to produce musically useful tones. the overtone series is really quite simple. behind every acoustically generated tone, there is a series of other tones which are happening simultaneously. (shapiro) musical timbres are made by combinations of overtones, and you can do with a synthesizer what's called additive

several meeting with heritage and we had clarifying language. it was never our intent to change that charter required procedure. the original ordinance specified that exemptions that are not noticed would only have 20 days to appeal, which isn't enough time. i agree and we introduced an amendment specifying that the appeal period will begin after notice for a public hearing with a posting on the planning department website of the determination. there is also a provision in the ordinance that would allow for a consolidated notice for large rezonings. we are already getting notice and it would be unreasonable to require an additional separate c-e-q-a notice. and we had provide that had that would apply to any area plans of five acres or more. we changed that to 20 acres or more so we narrowed the scope. i also understand that planning staff is recommending that the deadline to appeal be extended from 20 days to 30 days after that first entitlement and i agree with that change. and i do intend to amend the legislation assuming that the commission recommends it, to extend the appeal
